John's backcountry theme for 2019 is to hike all 37 wilderness areas in Colorado. This trip is intended to bag Ptarmigan Peak WA.

From the TH hike north through lodgepole and spruce fir about 3.5 miles to the Ptarmigan Peak WA boundary. As we climb we see evermore impressive views of Dillon Reservoir and the Gore Range, directly across the Blue River Valley. At the WA boundary, we will turnaround to take a nearly parellel, unmaintained trail heading south to rejoin the main trail about a mile from the trail head.


Leader will email everyone on the roster two days before the trip with an update on the weather and any last minute details.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
